The Holiday Gift Guide: The Dapper Gent

bulova curv Timepiece Holiday 50/50

Bulova CURV Chronograph
Bulova • $1,095 (sponsored)

A truly dapper gent knows that the best accessories are those that are both chic and a little bit left-of-center — the sort of devilish details that show he appreciates the classics but still marches to the beat of his own sartorial drum. Equipped with the world’s first curved chronograph movement, this five-handed stainless steel showstopper also comes with high-performance quartz precision, an elegant combination of modern and industrial design cues, and a profile that’s truly one of a kind. Much like the stylish fella wearing it, right?
